Two Divisions Offered
Two divisions (Gold and Silver) for each age group (to crown two different champions) will be offered. NTBA will not allow teams to choose which division they will play in. Pool play record will determine your division and thus each team will truly be placed in their correct talent level for bracket play. The top half of the teams will be placed in the Gold Bracket and the bottom half will be placed in the Silver Bracket. There must be a minimum of 8 teams to have two different divisions.
Great awards will be given to both the champion and runner-up for each age group. Both the Gold and Silver divisions will receive the same awards. Team and invidual awards will be given out.
NTBA Girls National Championship Divisions to choose from

Team Check In Process
Each team will be given a specific check-in time during the first day of Nationals. Any players arriving late MUST check in with NTBA before playing their first game. A player MUST play in at least one pool play game in order to be eligible for bracket play. Each team will wear their team uniforms to team check-in (either home or away color is fine). You MUST bring copies of report cards and birth certificates for all players along with an updated roster. NTBA will interview EVERY player to make sure all players are the correct age and in the correct grade. After your team is interviewed you will then take your team picture with Sink Photography. Please have your picture forms (listed above) filled out before arriving to team check-in.
